NISSAN HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nissan vehicles posted sales of 56,266 units in June compared with 51,994 units sold in June the previous year, an 8.2 percent increase.

  • All truck models (including crossovers and SUVs) showed gains, led by Rogue, which set a new June record with 6,959 units sold.
  • Versa sales continue to grow, with deliveries up 23.6 percent for the month.

"We continue to see strength in Nissan's lineup of trucks and crossovers," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. "At the same time, Versa continues to lead the pack in its segment, with buyers attracted to its unique combination of value and efficiency."

INFINITI HIGHLIGHTS

  • Infiniti sales for June 2010 were 8,304 units, up 31.7 percent from the 6,304 units sold in the same month a year earlier.
  • Every model in the Infiniti lineup posted double-digit percentage gains over June 2009.
  • The launch of the 2011 Infiniti M continues to boost sales for that model, which was up 75.4 percent over last June.
  • Sales of the refreshed Infiniti G lineup rose 25.7 percent (sedan sales up 33.1 percent; coupe sales up 10.8 percent).

"Our sales growth in June was fueled by the renewed Infiniti M and G Lines, but every one of our products showed sales increases over last year," said Ben Poore, vice president, Infiniti Business Unit.  "This momentum should continue to build as the all-new 2011 QX begins to arrive in our showrooms."

NOTE: To ensure consistency in global sales reporting, Nissan North America calculates monthly variances on a straight-percentage basis, unadjusted for the number of selling days. Both June 2010 and June 2009 had 25 selling days, so there is no variation between the two calculation methods.

In North America, Nissan's operations include automotive styling, engineering, consumer and corporate financing, sales and marketing, distribution and manufacturing.  Nissan is dedicated to improving the environment under the Nissan Green Program 2010, whose key priorities are reducing CO2 emissions, cutting other emissions and increasing recycling.  More information on Nissan in North America and the complete line of Nissan and Infiniti vehicles can be found online at www.nissanusa.com and www.infinitiusa.com.
